 Science and ethics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
John Ziman, the former Chairman of the Council for Science and Society, interprets ethics not as an abstract discipline but as a way of dealing with differing opinions that arise when traditional values are faced with new realities (Ziman, 2001).
The rapid development of modern science since the Renaissance is due mainly to the postulate that scientific theories should be independent of theological or religious beliefs.
The ethics of science is not a personal problem but a collective problem that involves all scientists at a personal but also at a general level.

 The Nanomeme Syndrome: Blurring of fact & fiction in the construction of a new science
Nevertheless, many of the images generated in science and popular culture are not related to data at all, but come from visualizations and animations frequently inspired or created directly from science fiction.
The authors put forward that this new science is ultimately about a shift in our perception of reality from a purely visual culture to one based on sensing and connectivity.
Art, literature and science working together is certainly a powerful combination that should be nurtured in education on all levels.

In 1678, Huygens, in a communication to the Academie des Science, propounded a wave theory of light propagated through 'aether,' and held that every point on a wave is itself a source of new waves.
Thus the connections which science establishes are "entirely arbitrary," and the "utmost effort of human reason is to reduce the principles, productive of natural phenomena, to a greater simplicity" (Hume 1738:30).
In 1742, Jean Le Rond D'Alembert introduced the principle which permitted the reduction of a problem in dynamics to one in statics: Kinetic equilibrium is obtained by inventing a fictional force equal in magnitude to the body in question and opposite in acceleration.

Some astronomers argue it to be the "tenth planet." Because Ceres is located in the "asteroid belt" it was presumed to be homogeneous in structure and therefore not a planet.
The composition of meat and milk from beef and dairy cattle derived from cloning were compared to that of genetic- and breed-matched control animals from conventional reproduction.
The authors suggest that in tropical bees it is more important for large bees to retain heat for they spend more of their time in foraging while smaller bees spend more of their time on the nest where incubation of the brood requires them to lose heat.

 Too many journals in China (November 1999) - News - PhysicsWeb
The large number of low-quality scientific journals in China is hindering Chinese science according to the National Natural Science Foundation of China in Beijing.
The problem, according to Shengli Ren and colleagues in the foundation's publication department, is that almost every science organisation in China publishes its own journal.
They suggest closing one-third of these journals and increasing the international distribution of certain Chinese journals that are published in English (Science 286 1683).

Abstract This paper is part of a long-term effort to increase expressiveness of algebraic specification languages while at the same time having a simple semantic foundation on which efficient execution by rewriting and powerful theorem-proving tools can be based.
Abstract Equational deduction is generalised within a category-based abstract model theory framework, and proved complete under a hypothesis of quantifier projectivity, using a semantic treatment that regards quantifiers as models rather than variables, and valuations as model morphisms rather than functions.
Abstract The author introduces the class of contraction algebras in which the algebra of infinite and finite terms is free over the set of variables.

The science of genetics began in 1900, when several plant breeders independently discovered the work of the Austrian monk Gregor Mendel, which, although published in 1866, had been virtually ignored.
Working with garden peas, Mendel described the patterns of inheritance in terms of seven pairs of contrasting traits that appeared in different pea-plant varieties.
He reported his discovery to the Royal Society of London in 1683, but the science of bacteriology was not firmly established until the middle of the 19th century.
